My latest book is The One Who Swam With The Fishes.

"A mesmerizing account of the well-known story of Matsyagandha ... and her transformation from fisherman’s daughter to Satyavati, Santanu’s royal consort and the Mother/Progenitor of the Kuru clan." - Hindustan Times

"Themes of fate, morality and power overlay a subtle and essential feminism to make this lyrical book a must-read. If this is Madhavan’s first book in the Girls from the Mahabharata series, there is much to look forward to in the months to come." - Open Magazine

"A gleeful dollop of Blytonian magic ... Reddy Madhavan is also able to tackle some fairly sensitive subjects such as identity, the love of and karmic ties with parents, adoption, the first sexual encounter, loneliness, and my favourite, feminist rage." - Scroll

Today in Photo


Happy Diwali from a little corner in my mum's house. We watched a movie, ate a massive lunch and then did a little meditation (which I've been doing daily like a hippy, but I feel great). It's what they call Chhoti Diwali here in North India but I didn't want to leave my house tomorrow amongst the idiots who will, no doubt, flout the law and burst crackers anyway so today is our Diwali, tomorrow I will clean as much of the house as I feel able to, drink a little wine, light a little candle and hope for the best in the coming new year. #diwali2020
